About Us


The Seneca Falls Business Association (SFBA) is the lead organizer of the Seneca Falls Canal Fest.   The Canal Fest traces its roots back to the Aqua Festival held in the ‘60s and early ‘70s.  In 2016 with only 4 months of planning, the Seneca Falls Canal Fest was born.

Through the SFBA's efforts, the festival has doubled in size.  However, the Canal Fest can only keep growing with your help. 

Volunteers and Sponsorship Donations are always needed.  We invite you to join in and be a part of this celebration.  



We are still preparing and we need your help.  Volunteers make this type of event a success.   Only a couple of hours of your time is needed. It's not difficult and you'll have fun.  Just send us a message through the Contact page.  Come and be part of Canal Fest!

"A Little Goes A Long Way!"
